Jonathan Black relates the story of his conversion to Christ at the age of 19. Raised in a Christian family, Jonathan said he was saved at 10 years of age. Despite an initial burst of enthusiasm, his life evidenced no long-term change and he ended up in his late teens a thoroughly worldly young man enjoying the pleasures of the world. However, God graciously worked in his life. He was truly saved one day while sitting in his car at the side of the road understanding the work of Christ for a sinner like him (Testimony given 11th Mar 2018)

Mervyn Hall preaches on the purpose and value of the Bible for the Christian in today’s world. It is a “light” that enables us to “look out” and employ a Biblical worldview. It is also a “lamp” with which to “look down” and be guided in our Christian walk. Finally it is a “mirror” with which to “look in” – it corrects, challenges and rebukes us and causes us to seek to be more holy and more like our Saviour (Message preached 15th Feb 2018)
